|Located on the north-western side of the Dardenelles, the Gallipoli peninsula has long been a key to Istanbul in that anyone breaking through the straits, had a good chance of capturing Istanbul. Many have tried, but few have succeeded. Although today the Gallipoli Peninsula is a peaceful place, it is a place of great significance for Australians and New Zealanders, many of whom make the trek here each year for ANZAC Day.You don’t need to be a military buff to enjoy this comprehensive tour which will take you to:
